Faber Seeks Help with Anger Management

Patrick Faber

In the wake of the video that has landed Faber in the predicament he now finds himself in, the Area Representative for Collet is seeking help with controlling his temper.  He says that despite what was shown in the viral footage, he did not physically accost the mother of his child.  He also spoke on the eligibility of his successor to lead the party should he be ousted from office.


Patrick Faber, Party Leader, U.D.P.

“My intention is genuine, I have listened to all the concerns of persons but I have also done my own reflection and it is something that I do need to work on.  I have come to that realization, I am not denying that.  For the record though, because I see that many people have ran away with that [idea] that it’s some kind of physical violence and I am not defending [it].  I kicked a door, it was not physical to anybody and I need to say that because apparently a lot of people have run away with much more than that.  It does not excuse my behavior, it is not behavior becoming of somebody that holds the kind of office that I hold and so I realized then as I may have even before that getting some help is not a bad idea and that is exactly what I am doing. It would seem to me that none of my colleagues who are elected in the house, if we are to go by what Honorable Shyne Barrow has said, that none of my colleagues want the leadership of the party.  Remember, our constitution says clearly as to who can lead, so it does not mince any words.  In order for you to offer yourself to be the leader of the party you have to be in the National Assembly which is why Saldivar can have no hope.  He says he doesn’t want it, he can’t get it because he’s simply not in the house and lost by two thousand, one hundred votes or thereabouts.  Any of the other colleagues who are aspiring or who would want to aspire, have to be in the National Assembly, meaning the House of Representatives or the Senate and as it would seem, even though the hierarchy of the party’s constitution is clear that the three that have gotten together to make this decision have very little regard for what is in the constitution but it is not illegal.”
